MCA were set the task of creating a new and vibrant office environment which would have an in-built flexibility, to inspire collaborative working and enhanced a problem-solving culture. The clients brief was far-reaching and the layout had to seamlessly incorporate new technologies within the various spaces.
The design development process involved liaising with numerous client representatives including IT, Security, Technology, Smart Building, Facilities Management, Project Management, Operations Management, Safety, Workplace Solutions and Furniture specialists as well as the extensive design team which extended further post-tender to include the contractor and numerous sub-contractors. The works were completed within an extremely tight time frame requiring constant interaction between all parties, particularly to ensure the incorporation of the smart building technology.
An open plan layout with feature sculptural hubs and meeting pods with bench-like desking, pull-down power and data connections ensure a vibrant and enjoyable working environment has been achieved.
